right in and say good morning to our thursday political power. mark ginsburg, joi ann reed, ron reagan, and republican strategist susan del percio. it's great to have you all here. as we speak right now, the confirmation hearing of john kerry is taking place. started roughly after 10:00 a.m. and this is a big difference of what we saw yesterday, ironically enough, this is the senate committee that kerry technically still chairs, and he made a joke about that, saying it was pretty -- pretty interesting position to be on the soother side, and those esteemed senators that sit up there. let's start out with how this started off. he showed up with a power panel that was fresh, experienced, and bipartisan. when i talked about fresh, elizabeth warren, experienced, hillary clinton, and bipartisan, mccain. >> our friendship has been affected from time to time by our enthusiasm for the conflicting views and by the competitive nature of politics, but the friendship has endured, i believe, it is based in mutual respect. >> mark, i want to start with you. everybody says this is going to be smooth s
and white house middle east adviser mark ginsburg. let me start with israel. do israelis have a choice but to bomb and truck convoys and worry about hezbollah getting surface to air missiles or getting chemical weapons? >> they had no choice. the gootd nd news is either the syrian regime wants to get them out or hezbollah had been storing weapons in syria wanted to get them out because they are not quite sure that assad is going to last. no, i think this is very similar to what the israelis did in 2007 when syria started moving toward developing a nuclear capability. >> mark ginsburg i read in the paper one of the accounts said the israeli bombing is close to damascus. >> yeah. one of the issues here, larry, is that there are weapons of mass destruction that are seeping out of their storage depots and we have picked up intelligence reports over the last few months. this is certainly not the first where the israelis went on high alert the last few days because they were concerned that there had been indications that some of the weapons of mass destruction had been transferred into the h

is former u.s. ambassador to morocco, mark ginsburg. how are you? >> good to be with you. >> hey, look. we know it's impossible to eradicate the tall been and we know that we have basically decimated al qaeda leadership in afghanistan. is it time to make the afghans grow up and take care of themselves or are the threats there still too great to draw down the forces too much? >> i think that you can answer your question four different ways because it's so confusing when's going on in afghanistan. the problem is ultimately that the afghani military is never going to be ready to take over for the withdrawal american forces to defend that country. the fact of the matter is that the taliban control a significant part of the country. even after the so-called mini surge that was orchestrated by general petraeus and general mcchrystal. the fact of the matter is that president karzai is very unpopular. and the fact of the matter is that geographically a central government in kabul can never really control the vast majority of that country, including the areas most closer to pakistan. >> ambassador,
